Sears marketed some interesting private-label stuff. In 1977 they made a video game system, called the Tele-Games Pinball Breakaway:

Stop in and look at Sears
Shop from the book at Sears
Pick up the phone and talk to Sears
'Cause Sears has everything!
I still have that Canon AE-1 and a bunch of lenses for it in a box somewhere

I used to have a Pentax K100 which was one of the best cameras I ever owned. I use a Nikon N-80 now. One of these years I’m going to move up to a DSLR.

I still have my Minolta XG-M as well. For anyone that still enjoys shootinting the old Minolta cameras, I suggest you get it cleaned and reworked with new gaskets, as the gasket kits are starting to disappear (at least in my area.)
For all of the technology found in the newer digital SLRs, I still enjoy my old XG-M. Sure, our Nikon D-5000, is a great camera... But shooting with an old manual versus a new digital SLR is (to me) comparable to painting with oils on canvas versus using Microsoft's "Paintbrush". Using either you have to have an eye for what is visually pleasing, but you have to have a real "artist's hand" to be creative with the former...

Just googled and found people have uploaded images of various past Sears catalog "Wish Books". Here is the 1980 version

This is my old Camera. Bought it at the Base PX in Iwakuni, Japan around 1970-1971 time frame.
An all-metal, mechanically (springs, gears, levers) controlled, manual focus SLR with match-needle exposure control.

I still have my K2 Pentax and a few lenses and filters etc. I hope I took the battery out of it.
I got rid of all the older screw mount equipment to a collector...

Here was the best thing of all in 1982.

As a less than neophyte, I usually admire your photos and then sit back and listen to what the pros have to say.
Today I will say that I inherited an old German camera from my father. It is a Contax but I can not find anything that resembles a model # There is a number on the flash mount that says X 777 but that may be a serial number. Is this anything worthwhile? My dad said it was a fine camera made after the war and was popular then.
